Well the plan had been for a frock a month, but February's frock didn't happen. However I did get one made for March.
This dress is the Lady Skater Dress by Kitschy Koo. I had plans to make this dress as part of my frock-fest so when it happened that this pattern was one of the ones included in the "Best of" patterns contest it seemed to be the right time to make it.
I also had an invitation to attend the Brisbane Social Sewist's High Tea and it seemed right to have a new frock for it. I didn't get any photos at the High Tea (bad blogger!) but we had some time before it started so we went to New Farm Park in Brisbane and got these photos.
I would have liked a narrow gold or aqua belt to wear with this but this gold circles belt is the best option I could find. It is cute though!
The dress has a little twirl factor going on...
but I may be getting to old to twirl as I got quite giddy...
I have reviewed this dress in detail on Pattern Review so all the details about the sewing of it can be found in the review - here.
And for those of you who can vote, I encourage you to check out all the entries - here.
Ciao kittens... more contest sewing up next.
